There was panic at a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God at Santos bus stop in the Isawo, Ikorodu, Lagos State, on Sunday after some gunmen walked in and abducted the pastor during the service.
Punch learnt that the pastor, identified only as Bajomo, was whisked away by the gunmen, who came to the church as if they were new
The pastor, who was abducted around 7am, was the first to reach the parish and was preparing for a workers’ meeting which usually preceded the Sunday service.
It was gathered that when the other members arrived at the church, the pastor was nowhere to be found.
The RCCG Head, Media and Public Relations, Pastor Segun Adegbiji, confirmed the abduction.
He said the church would invite God’s anger on those who troubled its members and pastors.
When contacted, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said she would get back to Punch correspondent on the matter.
